If you’re in business, it’s safe to say you’ve dealt with insurance issues in one form or another.
Insurance impacts every field of endeavor, and participants in the insurance industry confront matters in almost every practice area—employment, trade secrets and noncompete agreements, real estate and commercial transactions, mergers and acquisitions, errors and omissions liability, and yes, insurance coverage. Carrington Coleman understands the insurance industry, and our depth of experience in a wide range of practice areas provides a solid foundation for handling insurance matters.
Carrington Coleman works with several prominent brokerage firms on the full gamut of legal issues. Our noncompete team is especially active in litigation arising from the increasing mobility of brokers and agents, and regularly advises clients in the best practices to minimize the risk of litigation.
We have also represented insurance companies in commercial transactions such as mergers and acquisitions, as well as high-profile litigation, including bankruptcy and receivership actions, antitrust lawsuits, and the multi-state defense of class actions broadly challenging industry practices in determining premiums for complex insurance.
At the same time, our experienced insurance lawyers are leaders in their field, and apply their knowledge to help clients address a myriad of insurance coverage questions and litigation in other industries, including:
Our insurance coverage team focuses on policyholder representations concerning property, builder’s risk, and commercial liability insurance policies, providing advice and, when necessary, seasoned trial and appellate lawyers. Our construction and real estate lawyers regularly deal with disputes involving title insurance, sureties, and indemnity agreements. We also regularly counsel clients concerning director & officer insurance, and are panel counsel for securities and director and officer litigation for a major insurer.
When your business is at risk, it is essential to have the backing of an entire firm providing intelligent, strategic advice specific to your industry, as well as the litigation savvy to protect your interests in any forum.
